Public accusations of military threats support Pyongyang’s domestic agenda

The North Korean military criticized South Korea for conducting “military provocations” in an open letter, the North’s state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported Wednesday.

According to the KCNA article, the Korean People’s Army (KPA) mission at Panmunjeom – the location of Joint Security Area in the inter-Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) – released an open letter disclosing “the gravity of military provocations and confrontation acts being made by the warmongers in the area along the Military Demarcation Line (MDL) to ignite the second Korean war.”
